With 8oz of premium fill goose down, the 20*F Phoenix puts warmth in your back. Versatile protection down to 20* and only 17.50 oz packed.
The Phoenix is the 'little brother' of the Incubator, approximately 3/4 length. It's ideal for people who are pack size and weight conscious and want to shave those few extra ounces without sacrificing much in warmth or comfort. The Phoenix helps you maximize every ounce by using 8 oz of goose down, with 9 differential baffles that run the length of the quilt, which helps keep the down from shifting, providing more warmth. (the baffles make this much warmer than similar quilts using "sewn-through" construction, allowing more loft).
The Phoenix has a tapered cut, which not only reduces weight, but provides a more secure wrap around the hammock, eliminating drafts. This underquilt (or UQ) is 3/4-length, designed to lay from your head down to your knees. Some 'hangers' (hammocking campers) use a small piece of closed-cell-foam pad for under their lower legs and feet, which don't require as much insulation underneath to stay warm.Comes complete with a shock-cord suspension and stuff sack.

The uq is awesome. Great workmanship and just as I ordered. The suspension system is robust without being heavy. Well done. The main complaint was that I asked for it to be shipped to my work so my wife wouldn't see it as it was a gift for her. Hammockgear sent it to my house even though it was clearly NOT the shipping address. Guess who was home when it was delivered. That's right, my wife. Surprise ruined!
Anyway, I brought it to the attention of hammock gear and got an email saying they were confused because the shipping and billing addresses are near each other on the invoice. They also apologized. Great. That's helpful. I am likely to avoid hammock gear in the future due to what I consider to be customer service shortcomings, not product quality issues. I expected a little bit more from a company in the Buckeye state. Thats my opinion. YMMV.

I recieved my 20* Phoenix UQ for Christmas. I have a Hennessy Ultralight Hammock and was looking for a UQ to use with it. After researching many UQ I chose this one. I could not be more pleased. The craftsmanship is an A+++. The weights came just as listed. I have slept out 3 times so far and it has work excellent. I been down to the mid 30's with not cold spots air gaps or any other issues. If someone was looking for a UQ to work on there Hennessy this is the one. I am 5" 10" weight 170 and it fits me prefect. This is my first UQ and I cannot say enought good things about it.. If all the rest of the products here are this well made and work this well. I will be buying more in the future. Thanks Adam for such a great product.

The quilt is amazing. Ease of setup, craftsmanship, and materials all stellar.
No way to adequately convey quality here.

The materials are beautiful, the craftsmanship is second to none and the comfort is beyond belief. I love my Pheonix under quilt.
I could not believe the absolute comfort and warmth the first night I spent in it. Super easy to get on my Blackbird and immediate warmth.
I spend a lot of time on the PCT here in Oregon, the weight savings in my pack, the warmth at night, and the comfort that comes with having this underquilt attached to my hammock is superb.
I highly recommend this.
Oh and the customer service.. simply the best!!

I've ordered two Phoenix 20 degree 3/4 underquilts this year, one for me and one for my son. Both are impeccably made with excellent construction, materials, and stitching. The multiple suspension points allow us to dial in the perfect fit. The draft collar is great at helping seal the quilt to the bottom of our hammocks. Keeps us nice and warm down into the 20s (we've yet to get down 20 degrees while hanging).
I'd recommend a Hammock Gear Phoenix underquilt without hesitation.

Got our new 20* Phoenix underquilts just in time for a post Thanksgiving hang with my son. The temprature dropped to 28* that first night but we were warm and toasty. This is a well-crafted piece of outdoor gear that is a joy to own. Highly recommended.

Quilt is extremely nice and quite cozy. Plenty warm and I feel like temps are accurate. Pleasure to deal with Adam.

I have been trying out my 20deg Pheonix (with one ounce overfill) here and there. The other night I was sleeping out and checked the temp and it was 24 out. I had on shorts, a short-sleeved T-shirt and wool socks. That's it and I was warm and slept great. I am so pleased with I can't even describe it. I am hoping and prayin for some extra cash to buy a top quilt. Thanks very much.

I have slept in my Phoenix all over this country and all I can say is down heaven. From 17deg on top of Mica Mt to 60+ deg nights in the Linville Gorge. From frozen nights on the Superior Hiking Trail to the warm nights of the New Mexico desert. From the curve ball weather of the Wonderland Trail to the soup of a spring night in Demascus, VA this is my UQ of choice. Do yourself a favor and add this piece to your hanging system. You will not be sorry !
